Monster fans, prepare to squeal like a pig for ‘CHAW’ teaser trailer!

May 28th, 2009-

Giant killer pig movies. There really aren’t enough of these out there. Even the Sci-Fi Channel hasn’t really exploited the unsavory idea of hordes of mutant hogs attacking the human population. In fact, the only predatory pig film I can think of is Russell Mulcahy’s australian thriller Razorback from 1984. The image above is actually pulled from that movie, as CHAW has yet to release images of its sinister swine.

Korea has been sitting pretty at the forefront of asian cinema in the past few years and they have even given us a great bonafide creature feature in the form of The Host, an instant classic about a dysfunctional family fighting an aquatic mutant to reclaim their youngest member. Think of it as Little Miss Sunshine meets Godzilla.

The trailer for CHAW elicits both a pure schlock vibe and an popcorn action movie vibe. The hog looks quite cartoony, but as long as the movie manages to capture the same sort of discomfort and amuesement one gets when looking at the below photo, it has a chance of success.

As for the title, while it isn’t as iconic as say, Hogzilla or Super-Swine: The Porcine Project, CHAW has a nice, grotesque ring to it. While I think it’s the giant pig’s name, it actually evokes images of a less than appeasing nature; whats the chance that we might get scenes of a giant pig happily munching on a human cranium?

Anyway, you can read more about CHAW over at TWITCH, the foreign film fan’s one stop shop for all current international and exotic film projects. 

You can catch the trailer itself HERE.
